2018 trends: A palette for every complexion

When it comes to makeup, each season brings a new palette of trendy colours. But before you go all in on these stylish shades, it’s best to know which ones are right for you.

Ignore those colours that will dull or spoil your complexion. Instead, use a palette that will soften your features, brighten up your eyes and enhance your skin tone.

Here are a few ready-to-wear palettes for different complexions.

Very fair complexion

For very fair complexions, 2018 is all about pastels. Get ready for mint green on your eyelids and electric pink on your cheeks! When it comes to your nails, play it subtle and opt for skin-coloured or slightly pink shades.

The result? A bold, doll-like look that’s both modern and fun.

Lips and nails: Exaggerated Lips

Blush: Pink Cocotte

Do you have a naturally medium complexion? Then opt for more neutral shades: blue for the eyelids, earth tones or burnt sienna for the lips. Go with a light blush on your cheeks and say yay to grey for your nails.

The result? A mysterious, summery look that evokes the beach and the ocean.

Do you have a dark complexion? For your eyes, try textured browns by day and glittering golds by night. Go with a sunny orange for your lips and add the finishing touches with a tan blush for your cheeks, paired with burnt terracotta for your nails.

The result? A captivating, sophisticated look that’s romantic and exotic at the same time.

Lips: Sunny Mandarin

Blush: Rhassoul Powder

This year, if you’ve got a very dark complexion, it’s time to go big! Choose a deep blue to highlight your eyes, luscious red for your lips, intense purple for your nails and a softer, more romantic pink for your cheeks.

The result? A chic look with striking contrasts that gives you an air of glamour and drama.

Eyes: Vivid Cloud

Lips and nails: Dawn Sky

Cheeks: Re-enchanted Nude

Golden/yellow complexion

For more yellow complexions, a bright pastel palette is all the rage this year. Paint your eyelids pale violet, colour your nails and mouth with orange shades and, for the icing on the cake, apply old rose to your cheeks.

The result? A baroque look that’s bright and elegant, with a hint of exotic sophistication.

Eyes: Precious Lila

Lips and nails: Pomegranate

Blush: Pot Pourri

Nails: Deep Iris

Trust your instincts... and your creativity!

Naturally, these are just suggestions and you don’t have to follow them to a tee. The important thing is to trust your instincts and wear colours that make you feel confident and comfortable in your own skin.
